System Goals/Comments: Finding an integrated amp that completes the chain. Had at least 20 in the house over the last 7 years and not happy yet. Tried a half dozen vintage tube, Naim, Rega, Exposure, etc.
System Strengths: Sweet, expressive, accurate. Nice balance with MF A1 and Audio Note speakers.
System Weaknesses: Miss a little magic that I used to get from Rogers and Harbeth speakers. Also miss the lightning speed from Triangle speakers.

Comments on HT System: All I need. Great, simple, 2 channel that does voices and movie music well. Use the TV system to reality check the main system.
